Hemmings Motor News Blog Blog

Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

10 More Weather-based Car Names, Rated

As mentioned previously, cars need names. In most cases, we prefer those names to be words (even made up words) and not some alphanumeric salad. After all it’s an automobile, not a Star Wars droid. And when it comes to picking names, weather is a common source of inspiration for automakers. It’s relatable, yet can feel exotic or mighty – able to conjure up thoughts about a relaxing tropical locale or the fearsome power of nature. We rated 10 cars with weather based names in the first installment of this silly exercise. Now we’re back with ten more. Will there be a part three? The forecast says likely.

The coolest and hottest car names, ranked.

I've been to a beach in a car with no name, it felt good to be out of the snow, on the beach you can remember your name, 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no blow
